[PD] Pd version 0.52-0test3 released

My suggested naming:

- compiled for macOS 10.10+

- 32-bit ("i386") Macintosh version for OS X 10.7 or later; can load old, 32-bit external libraries

- 64-bit Macintosh version for OS X 10.7 or later

To be (overly) pedantic :) the naming is officially "Mac OS X" from 10.0 - 10.7, "OS X" from 10.8 - 10.11, then macOS 10.12 to now, as least on Wikipedia. That being said (written?) I find it confusing that OS "X" already stands for OS 10 since it follows OS 9.

Anyway, I agree with Alex that "macos7" is a misnomer and it would be better as "macosx107" or something similar as we are all used to "10.7." I can see why Apple finally bit the bullet and went to macOS 11 as it can get out of this X cycle.

Note: If/when we have builds linked to newer JACK builds, they will require macOS 10.12+.
